Cairn Lodge in Perthshire has appointed a new head chef for its award-winning restaurant.
The luxury hotel has welcomed Paul Tyrrell to the role, formerly head chef at Fonab Castle Hotel, who will oversee the team behind The Garden Room restaurant.
The eatery was awarded the Restaurant of the Year title at the Dram Awards in 2020.
Starting out in Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in London, Tyrrell has enjoyed a varied career in some of Scotland’s most renowned hotel restaurants, including Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire and the Rufflets Hotel in St Andrews, before becoming head chef at Pitlochry’s Fonab Castle Hotel.
Part of his new role will see him introduce a range of new menus at Cairn Lodge and he said he was ‘thrilled’ to be joining the hotel.
Speaking about Tyrrell’s appointment, managing director Jonathan Gilbanks said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Paul to lead our talented kitchen team here at Cairn Lodge. His pedigree is without question and I’m very excited about the ideas that he has for our menus.”
